KNUCKLE UP #315: UFC 198 + A Mystical 1st Time Happening: A Path Through the Mist + Outta the Lost Battalion. For some.

New, comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to the possibility that like Doug Henning once suggested, "there is MAGIC" afoot. Specifically in what yawns before us: a clearing in the fog that's surrounding the Heavyweight Lost Battalion only to reveal for the first time ever, a way out of total self-unaware insignificance. Who will make it out? And for how long? Questions hard to answer since we never thought they'd be asked. All of that and briefly: why Bellator needs to grow the f**k up.

In Round #315 the ill-tempered and ill-mannered and boastful KNUCKLE UP hostful EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Serao"], talks about the occasion for the miraculous that was UFC 198 with FABRICIO/STIPE match up magic and a now-revivified HW division we're going to see faces that we have not seen for awhile what on account of them being in-country in the misty Lost Battalion. In other words: this [UFC 198] changes EVERYTHING. At the UFC. BELLATOR? Still bedeviled by bullshit judging. Sorry, boys/girls.

And for the listener ON THE GO? The KNUCKLE UP TIME LINE.

1] 7:01: IS THERE A WORD FOR THAT FEELING WHEN YOU WANT TO PUNCH THE WORLD IN THE FACE?

2] 8:52: POPEYE: HE SNORES FUCKS.

3] 30:34: STILL WANT TO HELP OXBOW OUT? DO IT

4] 41:00: HANGING OUT WITH ROYCE WHILE HE MOCKED ME FOR BEING OLD

5] 41:30: SOMEDAY I WILL KILL YOU, RAY

6] 41:35: MY ONE + ONLY YOU, OL' BUTCHER KNIFE

7] 41: 37: TED CRUZ + THE SCIENCE OF PUNK BITCHERY
